This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

As others have said, it largely depends on how you manage your DNS. If it's BIND, here's the line that provides the TXT record for

        IN      TXT     "v=spf1 mx -all"

If you're a BIND user, I thought it might help to have a concrete example to work with; note that this line comes immediately after the SOA record, as it depends on position inside the file to pick up that it's a record for the domain itself, not some host or subdomain therein.

If you're not a BIND user, let us know what you are running.

It depends on your DNS management software but basically you just create new TXT record and put 420ef575ed03af13cdsbd22eafad9a4 in it.
